Man United transfers: ‘Red Devils will struggle to spend £200m this summer’

Man United transfers: The Red Devils will struggle to spend £200m on new players this summer, says Gordon Hill

Manchester United are in a “deep hole” after sacking manager David Moyes, according to former winger Gordon Hill.

The Scot was relieved of his duties on Tuesday and just 10 months into his reign at Old Trafford, with the club languishing in seventh place in the Premier League.

The Red Devils are understood to have up to £200m available to spend on new players during the summer transfer window to bolster their squad.

You are looking at £200m but what is out there?

However, Hill feels that the club will struggle to attract the top names to Old Trafford after missing out on Champions League qualification.

“The club is in a deep hole here because, number one, they need to spend money. Number two, they need to find somebody who is going to guide them and, number three, they have to go into the transfer market and hope what they get to spend is going to be suitable enough,” Hill told talkSPORT.

“David came in and had everything at his disposal but unfortunately didn’t use what he had and now it is a bigger menu list for the new man that is coming in.

“The task ahead is a massive task. We know the players that are going to leave, the players that are unhappy. What are you going to buy?

“If Man United are the top club in the world, they are going to have to go for the top players. You are looking at £200m but what is out there? [Especially] now they are not in Europe.”
